US Nationals 2021 Cancelled

Hello all US Underwater Hockey Players.

I am saddened to notify you all that the USOA UWH Committee has decided to cancel US Nationals for 2021.

After discussion with ourselves and the Denver Nationals Committee we felt that we could not safely, reliably or fairly plan a US Nationals tournament in the summer of 2021.

We expect that 2022 will see a US nationals, and look forward to seeing you all at that tournament.

Passing of Gustavo Pesce

By Kurt W. Allen 03/07/2021, 4:30pm CST

As many UWH players are already aware, Gustavo Pesce sadly passed away recently in a skiing accident.
The USOA UWH Committee members would like to acknowledge the many contributions that Gustavo has brought to US Underwater Hockey, as a long-time player, a member of the UWH Committee, and one of the key organizers and coaches for the San Francisco Sea Lions Juniors Team.
Gustavo brought a passion and intensity to his participation in UWH that few could equal.
Our condolences go to Gustavo’s Family, the San Francisco Sea Lions, and all the people who have come to know and appreciate Gustavo.
